Plan your next fishing charter aboard the MV Manutere out of Tauranga, Bay of Plenty, NZ.

Shallower spots and had a couple of good hits

A quieter week, this one.

The weather’s been generally good, but the shorter days seem to put all but the keen /obsessive fishers into hibernation. A shame because there’s been some great days out there.

I didn’t Saturday, the  last MotoTT trackday of the season, so I gave myself the day off.

We got the Sunday in though, headed outside Motiti and had a good start on the tarakihi.

They dropped off after midday, so we tried some shallower spots and had a couple of good hits, getting a nice amount of snapper to finish off what was a perfect day.

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo

    Hi Brett,
     
    I enjoyed my fishing during my last trip to Tauranga. The fishes caught was really delicious...Taratiki. I couldn't wait to eat them, so, I cooked a few fillets at the Bay Palm Motel where I stayed. I brought the rest back to Perth and my family just loved them.
     
    Just a note that you should be aware of so that you can advise all future Australians who fish with you and want to bring the fishes home. The fishes MUST be headless, gilled and gutted. Remember, must not have heads. I decleared my fishes and the first questions asked was whether I removed the head (which I did) and since my fishes were also gutted and gilled, I could bring in ALL(including the fillets).
     
    Best wishes for the season and happy fishing.

    Regards,
